Using Google Earth, spin the globe, stop it on a random destination, and zoom in for a closer look! Use this location as the setting for your writing. Feel free to fictionalize beyond what can be seen through Google Earth. You might be a resident of the location you have landed upon, a visitor from another country, or a tourist from another planet. You are limited only by your own creativity, but be consistent with the details you see through Google Earth. Please be sure to include the exact coordinates as a subtitle to your submission, so that readers can travel to your destination to see the location that inspired your writing.
Please send us your top entry for each of the following grades:
Grades 7-8, Grades 9-10, Grades 11-12.
1st, 2nd and 3rd place cash prizes for each age group will be awarded.
Student entries should fit one of the following categories:
Poetry (up to120 lines); Short Story, Personal Essay, or Dramatic Scene (up to 1200 words).
Prizes will be awarded at each grade level: $100 (First place), $75 (Second), $50 (Third).
Please encourage artwork submissions related to the theme as well!
The best artwork submitted will be featured on the cover and will win a prize!
All submissions should be sent to Claire Pacaud (email@example.com). A representative from each school should send that school’s entries individually as separate file attachments. The filename of the document should indicate the school and grade. In the file itself, include the work’s title, the student's name, grade, and school.
The submission deadline is March 1, 2013.
